ON SEXUAL ABUSE

A word from Israel Moskovits, director of the film:

Narrow Bridge is the first film of its kind in that it breaks the silence about the existence of sexual abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community. While the film focuses on the existence of the problem in that community, sexual abuse is a serious problem that is found in every religion, group, and community in the world. The scars run deep and affect victims, their families, and their communities for years. Sexual abusers rarely strike only once, they often know their victims and abuse many people over a long period of time.

There has been a long history of denial and inaction with regard to sexual abuse. When complaints are filed, accusers are often disbelieved or shunned, while the abusers are protected and often reassigned to other positions where they have the capacity to harm more victims. Meanwhile, the abused suffer in silence while the abusers do not get the help they need.

There is a prevalent myth among all religions that sexual abuse is not one of "their problems". The popularity of this notion allows the vicious cycle of harm to continue. As the facade of denial has begun to crumble, resources are now available for survivors and aggressors seeking treatment. If you or someone you know has been a victim of or witness to sexual abuse, do something about it.

While Narrow Bridge focuses on sexual abuse, it is also a film about abuse generally and its effects on survivors. The patterns of hurt and healing in sexual abuse, domestic abuse, incest, rape, or other forms of abuse are similar. It is my hope that every person who watches Narrow Bridge gets something different out of it. For those that are survivors of abuse, I hope the film empowers them with a message of hope. For those that are not survivors, I hope they will walk away with a greater understanding of the problem and a motivation to positively impact it. For religious viewers of all faiths, I hope they will see the similarities that infuse every religion, and come away with a renewed sense of faith and pride.

Narrow Bridge is a film about sexual abuse, but also about the tremendous power of faith, friendship and love. It is my hope that this film's message empowers its audience to use these forces to positively impact the problem of abuse, because if there is to be change, people need to work together.

The New York Post is expected to have a story on his arrest in tomorrow's paper. There MAY be more from that paper in the next few days -- in particular, I've been urging the reporter for weeks to treat this story not as an isolated incident but as emblematic of a pattern of mishandling (or worse) of such cases in Orthodox Jewish communities. If you have information to contribute, please contact Phil Messing at the New York Post.

Charlie Hynes should be locked up in the same cell as these monsters for abusing his authority.

Don't forget that a warden of Alcatraz was once arrested for his abuses. The jury even presented a non-binding resolution to the judge charging him with crimes against humanity. For that shocking but true story, see the movie "Murder in the First".

Teacher admits defrauding retailers of $200,000
Using stolen items and counterfeit receipts, N.Y. man repeatedly profited
Tuesday, June 12, 2007
BY GUY STERLING
Star-Ledger Staff
A Brooklyn teacher whose wife is pregnant with their first child pleaded guilty in federal court yesterday to playing a key role in a scheme that defrauded several major retail stores out of $200,000 over a four-year period.

At a hearing in Newark, Adam Stefanile, 32, admitted to U.S. District Judge Jose Linares that he and another man carried out the fraud from July 2002 until May of last year by stealing merchandise and then getting refunds for the items using counterfeit receipts.

While none of the individual frauds cited during yesterday's hearing exceeded $300, authorities said there were hundreds of such transactions, many in New Jersey. Legal papers identified the scheme's other participant as just S.M.

At the end of the proceeding, Linares set Stefanile's sentencing for September only to have defense lawyer John Murphy Jr. request it be rescheduled to November, after his client's wife is to give birth. The judge consented.

Earlier, Stefanile told Linares he holds a master's degree in teaching secondary school science and works at the Jewish Institute in Queens.

Stefanile faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and fines ranging to $250,000 after pleading guilty to a count of wire fraud.

Prosecutors identified the victims of the scheme as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Pier 1 Imports, Michaels Stores and F.Y.E. stores in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

According to court documents, Stefanile stole the items in question from a loading dock on Long Island and also from unattended delivery trucks. He lifted receipt tapes from the stores as well.

With the aid of a computer scanner, Stefanile produced any number of counterfeit receipts after stopping by the stores to buy one item that matched the pilfered items, authorities charged. He then returned the stolen merchandise to the stores for money, using the bogus receipts.

Listen, UOJ, not for anything, because I am with you, man, but as soon as they told Reb lazer that this lunatic Colmer was seeking out little itty bitty titty of the hairless sort - Reb Lazer threw him out. So what do you want with Reb Lazer? Check the facts. There is no pre-school in the place either.

Its a great day in klal yisroel when a guy getting fellatio from kids who just got off the jungle gym is arrested. Let us all pray that in jail ol' Stefan becomes a semen sponge for the entire black population of whatever prison they send him to.

ISRAEL NABS B'KLYN SEX 'PREDATOR'
By PHILIP MESSING
June 15, 2007 -- An alleged pedophile suspected of preying on as many as a dozen young boys in Brooklyn was arrested in Israel yesterday following his indictment on charges he molested two 13-year-olds, authorities said.

Stefan Colmer, 30, a computer technician and salesman, was picked up by Israeli police in Jerusalem at the request of the U.S. Justice and State departments.
Colmer was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury for allegedly performing oral sex on the two boys from January to May 2006. He was charged with eight counts of committing a criminal sexual act and faces up to seven years in prison.
He also faces charges of sexual abuse, sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child, a source said. "We are looking to have him extradited," said Sandy Silverstein, a spokesman for Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes.
The investigation began last fall following rumors that Colmer had lured boys at the Mirrer Yeshiva to his nearby home.
Yeshiva officials didn't return a call for comment.

Rabbi Effy Wachsmann got up at the last Agudah fresser-convention to say that we cannot go by what a gadol said in a previous dor - even the last dor - unless the heintigge gedolim agree with it.

I guess the Agudah doesn't like uncomfortable truths. The obvious reason for that ridiculous speech was to mach avek R' Shraga Feivel's letter that was resurrected about corruption in the rabbonus.

You are very correct.

We live a Torah-life by a "Mesorah", which gets passed on from generation to generation.

What the previous True Gedolim said (Reb Ahron, Reb Shraga Feivel Mendelowitz, Rav Schwab etc) was the "torah" then and now as well.

"Ain-Bes-Din-yochoil-li'vatel....."

Not all Institutions have kashrus on their agenda, they are working on it.

In the meantime we are losing our children to their inactions-as Reb Shraga Feivel said in "I ACCUSE...".

**********IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THIS CASE***********

UOJ has only a half of the story.

#1) Lazer Ginzberg is not affiliated with the Aguda too much.
He is the rov of an agudah shul on coney island avenue in flatbush.
He was hired by a private kehillah and not paid by the Agudath israel of America.
He could daven maariv at the siyum hashas - but he is not part of any rabbinical commttee - or any other committee from the agudath israel whatsoever.

2)He IS affiliated with the Mirrer Yeshiva. He is the rosh kollel for more than 30 years.

3)Stephen Colmer was a mispallel at Lazer Ginzbergs shul. He was warned repetedly by many many many people that colmer was a dangerous person.
He always answered that he "was watching him"! (I wonder if he was really "watching him".)
He than did a dangerous move which the authorities should be notified about.
He decided to learn bichavrusah with this monster - INSIDE THE MIRRER YESHIVA EVERY SINGLE DAY.

That's right folks.

Lazer Ginzberg brought a child molester into a yeshiva building which has HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of innocent fresh young as*es for this mongoloid to prey on.

There is another person guilty here.

The principle of the yeshiva was warned repetedly about this as well.

He told countless people that he "was getting Colmer the help he needed".

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?

WHERE IS THE NYPD / DA OFFICE?

WHY HAVE THEY NOT DRAGGED THE YESHIVA ADMINISTRATION INTO THEIR OFFICES AND QUESTIONED THEM?

IS THIS A BIG JOKE?

WHY IS LAZER GINZBERG WALKING AROUND LIKE A FREE MAN?

WHERE IS THE PUBLIC OUTCRY?

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN IN THE MIDST OF OUR COMMUNITY - AND WE KNEW ABOUT IT - AND WE TOOK ACTION - WE TOLD OUR PRINCIPLES AND RABBONIM ABOUT IT - AND THEY IGNORED IT?

THEY SHOULD BE FIRED AND PROSECUTED.

perhaps the NY Post should be informed that this is the same Mirrer Yeshiva which harbors convictid felons.

Let me explain why all of the rabbis who knew about Colmer's activities did not report their knowledge to criminal justice authorities. I will also explain why these rabbis will never be prosecuted.

There is no mandatory reporting law in New York State applicable to the yeshivas, Catholic parochial schools, and other nonpublic schools. Other states have them, New York does not. It appears that the rabbis broke no laws.

A lawyer from our community has asked the New York State Legislature for such a law.

Typical Rabbi stunt.

When a lowlife is exposed as a pedophile, what does the Rabbi do? They learn with him as a chavrusa. They make them a gabbai. They honor them at dinners. The Yated puts their cockamaimie picture in the center page of their newspaper.

Shame on the rabbis, hijackers of the religion, the Hamas leadership of Orthodoxy.

Rabbis read the words of your colleague at the Yated this week:

" Often, the truth is crystal clear for all to see. But that which is self-evident to the entire world is somehow not at all obvious to this person and no amount of explaining will help.

You wonder, what could he be thinking to engage in such reckless, irrational behavior?

The answer is likely that the person’s ego prevailed and his thinking process was taken over. His actions were divorced from the process of weighing, judging and reasoning things through.

Can it be that Korach, described as a “smart man,” didn’t think things through? It must be that whatever thinking he engaged in was corrupted by his craving for power. He was so jealous of his Levi cousins that his brain ceased to work the way it usually did."

Wake up before it's too late.

We've been calling and the schmuck Schmeterer gets on the phone and keeps mentioning the extradition agreement with Israel which included male victims only after 1988. Meanwhile, the Israeli Embassy says that all they're waiting for is a phone call from the DA's office. They've been waiting for 19 years now. It's time to go to the higher ups-the governor, senators, congressmen, etc- to put real pressure on Hynes.

Welcome to the Crossing at La Marque. It’s been vacant for a year and portions of it condemned for three.

"Not much of a welcome sign, is it?” said La Marque Assistant Fire Marshal Capt. Alfred Decker. “It's a shame for the citizens of La Marque to have to put up with this.”

The property belongs to Samuel Pinter, a rabbi from New York who operates a non-profit organization supposedly dedicated to providing affordable housing to the poor, disabled and elderly.

Chances are his name doesn't ring a bell, but if you watch the news, you might be familiar with one of his other properties. The Carter's Grove apartments, which were shut down by Houston earlier this year after two children, were shocked while playing near an unlocked electrical box. 11 News tried to reach Pinter at his office in New York, but was unsuccessful.

How sharp Harold Pinter's 1978 cautionary tale about adultery feels.

Maybe it is quaint to find a play without the sexual grappling, obscenities and all the other show-offy coarseness Mr Pinter's lesser imitators have imposed on us.

Mirrer Talmid said...

Which menahel in the Mir was covering up for Colmer?

I can even understand somewhat how Pinter is allowed to get away with it there but not Colmer. The Mirrer rebbeyim always have their heads in learning and can't believe Pinter is a thief. They don't have the time or even know-how of how to look up the information. Even decades ago when Leib never came around or gave the yeshiva a penny (because he had nothing to get out of it at the time), they denied he was a ganav. Leib uses that to his advantage to take advantage of them, just like he's been taking advantage of people his whole thieving life.

The one thread I seem to see is that you must sacrifice your life and the life of your children for Orthodoxy. Heaven forbid if we tarnish its image. PR is more important than the truth.

I have always thought that the Hashem judges Jews by the way we treat the least powerful--widows, orphans, converts, etc. We have orphaned a whole generation by failing to protect the children who were molested. We have also judged children who just couldn't keep up with the yeshiva curriculum as lesser. Some of the brightest and best have left and others have been damaged.
I used to doubt that European Jewry could have been as bad as the stories of Singer's I read--I no longer doubt it.

Let us all try to salvage what is left of Judaism by doing the right and logical things. I ask everyone to post one thing we can all do and hope that small changes brings us closer to the geulah.

A friend of mine works for the media in Israel and was present at the arraignment hearing. Apparently Colmer choose not to attend because he didn't want to be seen by the cameras so only his public defense attorney showed up.

They agreed to hold him until Tuesday when they would meet in court again, but this time he would have a criminal lawyer he has hired. That doesn't mean on Tuesday they will let him go free, most likely on Tuesday they will set a date for a full extradition hearing according to my friend who often covers criminal cases in Israel.

Ultimatum to Alleged Chabad Molesters & Enablers said...

http://failedmessiah.typepad.com/failed_messiahcom/2007/06/the_newest_chab.html

June 15, 2007
The Newest Chabad Scandal
A 14 1/2 year old girl from a Conservative Jewish home has a school project, of sorts – the requirement to do community service. She volunteers at her local Chabad House and quickly becomes the babysitter for the the rabbi's infant and toddler. Over the years, she spends much time alone in the Chabad House with the rabbi and two tiny children while the rabbi's wife works or is out of town. The girl's parents grow suspicious. They wonder how this type of yihud can be allowed. The rabbi blows them off.

The girl claims to have been raped on a local (non-Chabad) outing not long after she started helping out at Chabad. The parents got her therapy. The girl claimed not to know the boy(s) that raped her. She has been in therapy since then. And there is more to this story that can be told, if necessary.

This girl is an honor student at an exclusive school. She has a large college scholarship waiting for her. Despite her trauma, she seemed to be holding her life together and doing well. But her parents rightly worried about her involvement with Chabad – specifically the yihud issues with the rabbi, rampant underage alcohol use at the weekly kiddushes and special occasions, and less-than-Orthodox behavior of the Lubavitch yeshiva students introduced to her by the rabbi. They warned the rabbi (including written warnings) and asked for change. Yet they reluctantly allowed her to continue contact with Chabad, unable to believe the worst.

The girl's mother is a convert, converted both by a Conservative rabbi and an Orthodox (but non-Chabad rabbi). The girl was also converted as a young child in this manner.

The Chabad rabbi tells the girl she is not Jewish because she did not reaffirm her conversion when she turned 12. He tells her he will arrange a new conversion. However, she will need to go to Crown Heights and study for two years first. He drills this into her, constantly urging the girl – a minor – to leave for Crown Heights.

At the same time, the rabbi introduces the girl to Lubavitch yeshiva students visiting the area. Over the years the parents find evidence of trysts with these yeshiva students, in once case literally pulling a Lubavitch yeshiva student off their daughter as they lay in her bed, partially clothed and about to cohabit.

A few months ago, the girl, then 17, begins acting erratically. Parents find more evidence of trysts, including four negative pregnancy tests. When confronted the girl tells her parents that "We," i.e., Chabad-Lubavitch, Orthodoxy, "do not use contraception." When pressed the girl claims she has been with an "older" man.

Two weeks before graduation with honors from her exclusive high school, the girl – who had turned 18 two weeks before – fled for Crown Heights without telling her parents. A Chabad boy she met through the rabbi paid for her ticket. The rabbi's sister picked the girl up at the airport and took her to Crown Heights. The rabbi arranged housing for her and found her a job.

The parents have evidence of illegal alcohol and drug use involving their daughter and several Chabad boys, both before and after her flight to Crown Heights.

The parents contacted Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, the titular head of Chabad, first on the 18th of May and then several times thereafter, including more attempts at contact yesterday and today. Rabbi Krinsky has consistently refused to speak with them or answer their emails.

The rabbi exerted undue influence over this girl when she was a minor. He plied her with alcohol, spent many hours alone with her in his home, disregarded her parents' wishes and, it may well be, committed clergy abuse.

This rabbi is a known problem in Chabad. But Chabad – more interested in protecting its image before Tuesday's ceremonies honoring the 13th yartzeit of the Rebbe than it is in this girl's welfare – refuses to deal with the problem.

It is Shabbos now in NYC. I had hoped to post this before Shabbos started, but was unable to. Still, I'm sure word will filter into Crown Heights. So let me get personal.

Rabbi Krinsky, people know about this, more people than you realize, bigger people than you realize. You cannot cover this one up. But you can deal with it. Do the right thing. Withdraw the rabbi in question and keep him away from children and college students. That means keep him out of outreach entirely. Do this any way you see fit but please do it.

Saturday night, Sunday morning at the latest, call up this girl's parents and broker a deal. Get the girl back home. Let her doctor and therapist examine her.

If she wants to reaffirm her conversion after a reasonable amount of time away from Chabad (and I mean away from Chabad) – let her. I think three to six months with no Chabad contact would be about right.

Rabbi Krinsky, do you remember another time when you would not take a phone call? That did not work out very well for you. Thing is, you could have talked your way out of it. Look at the lag time between the publication in Israel and the eventual publication here. Does that look like someone who was, then, "gleefully" running to publish "dirt" about Chabad?

The point is, not everyone with a complaint is out to hurt the organization, but that quickly changes when the organization hurts them. Some people just want their daughter back, safe, and a certain rabbi removed so he cannot hurt others. This does not seem an unreasonable request. I'm sure you can find a way to honor it in full before Monday morning.

I was hoping no details would ever have to come out. But it seems Rabbi Krinsky and Company are making the same mistakes all over again. If the family doesn't hear from Rabbi Krinsky today, I suppose more details will come out Monday or Tuesday – but in a much larger and more powerful venue than FailedMessiah.

The very idea that Rabbi Krinsky – the head of Chabad, so to speak – would stonewall these people for almost one month when they are literally concerned about the life of their child should greatly trouble all of us. Putting PR before the well-being of this girl and her parents is criminal.

Following Rabbi Twerski, Mandel spoke about ways to engage children in conversations about sex abuse. Mandel noted that it was up to the parents to engage their children because most victims do not come forward due to shame, fear of their abusers, a sense of loyalty to their abusers and/or concern about being stigmatized.

However, when an audience member asked whether sex education could help to strengthen children's knowledge of inappropriate behaviors and empower them to come forward if someone violated them, Mandel responded that sex education was "not something realistic" in a community that stresses modesty.

He told parents that the overwhelming majority of children who have experienced "unwanted touch" would go on to live happy, healthy lives, while only a "small percentage" of individuals would be permanently harmed by the abuse

Mandel also said that abusers could be treated for their perversions.

"An individual who abuses children and who participates in treatment can lead a successful life and be believed that they would no longer hurt children," Mandel said.

When asked, in an interview the following day, whether such people could work with children again, Mandel evaded the question.

Hello All

I Don't care too much for blogs, but I feel tha in this case, this is a good way to get my message across.

My Company in Manhattan uses the services of the Computer Networking Company that Stefan Colmer used to be with. Stefan was often in my office doing work and several times even came to my home to hookup my computers and help my wife and kids with them. I was appalled when I heard about this story and am very satisfied to hear of Stefan's recent arrest. In fact, there was a time where he once held my son on his lap and would not let go of him. My son told my wife about this and insisted that Stefan was gay and that there was something wrong. But at the time my wife wrote it off as an isolated incident. I thank God she was home at the time and nothing further happened. If these allegations of what Stefan did to many other young boys are true (and I believe them to be), then he deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

To all the victims out there who have remained silent; Now is the time to come forward and do the right thing.

Good luck.

Lets be clear here. This is not ger cleaning off the dreck on its face. This is a bunch of parents with newly bar mitzva boys who dont want thier bochurim bending over for the likes of Leizerovits but would rather protect the young kids from losing virginity at so young an age and to a fuckin gai mashgiach.
Even with Leizerovts gone who would trust a kid with enabler Olewsky of agudah fame? that shtick tinof has been covering for and enabling leizerovits since the lakewood story 15+ years ago!
It remains to be seen if what LVF says about the new mesifta opening will actualy come to fruition or that these parents are as spineless as the YTT parents.
What would the scale look like if we put olewski on 1 side and margo-batchee on the other? Come to think of it..I don't think the scale could survive.

Colmer was visited by Mondrowitz in prison to get referals to lawyers familiar in extradition cases. Leizerowitz was barred from visiting due to a rare and highly contagious form of dick in mouth disease but he will be using the services of the high priced lawyer who stupidly recommended last year that he should not fear the victims because the victims bark has no bite. Next week is the anniversary of when MK and EN went to discuss the leizerowitz case with this lawyer who recommended the 7-11 party go on. An ass could have given better advice......... But all the assess were too sore to speak after all the action they saw with all these molester rabbis.

Regarding serial child molesters like Colmer, it is important to seperate this issue from homosexuality. There are frum therapists trained to help men with homosexual issues. Predation is another matter completely. The problem is that several of these therapists in the frum community have have taken on predation cases. These therapists have neither the education or skill set to treat the child molester and must refer these cases. Therapist must hold PHD or MD with specific training to treat the predator. There are several therapists, without the requisite training, here and in Israel, are taking on such cases. As good intentioned as they may be, they are putting our communites at risk by not referring to professionals. These frum homosexual therapists must be closely monitored by responsible community activists.

Summary of The Weekly Torah Reading: Rabbi Aron Tendler
Parshas Chukas
Note: The Shabbos Torah Reading is divided into 7 sections. Each section
is called an Aliya [literally: Go up] since for each Aliya, one
person "goes up" to make a bracha [blessing] on the Torah Reading.

1st Aliya: The laws of the Parah Adumah- the Red Heifer, are detailed.

2nd Aliya: In Nissan of the 40th year, Miriam died. The well dried up and
the nation gathered against Moshe and Aharon to complain.

3rd Aliya: The "hitting of the rock" occurred and Moshe and Aharon were
refused entry into Eretz Yisroel.

4th Aliya: Moshe requested from Edom permission to travel through their
land on the way to Eretz Yisroel. Edom refused.

5th Aliya: Aharon died and Elazar succeeded his father as Kohain Gadol.
They encountered the southern Cannanities (13 miles west of the Dead Sea)
and bested them in battle. Following Aharon's death the protective clouds
departed and the nation began to complain about the living conditions.
Hashem sent poisonous snakes to attack the nation and Moshe was instructed
to create the "copper snake on a stick" o miraculously save the bitten.

6th & 7th Aliya: The nation traveled to Yeshimon - northeast of the Dead
Sea. In the conclusion of Chukas, the nation was refused access to the
lands of Sichon and Og and Moshe led them into victorious battle against
them.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary of The Haftorah:
Haftorah Chukas
Judges: 11 1:33

In the year 2779 Yiftach HaGiladi became Judge - Shofet. Yiftach is
described as a gifted warrior who was seemingly unworthy of becoming the
Shofet. His brothers had cast out Yiftach because he was the son of a
concubine. While away from his family Yiftach gathered around himself an
army of outlaws. Due to the oppression and tyranny of Ammon, Yiftach was
asked by the elders of Gilad to return to the family and lead them against
the forces of Ammon. Yiftach was victorious and remained Shofet for six
years.

There are a number of reason why the story of Yiftach was selected to
complement Parshas Chukas. First of all the issue of leadership. The
Talmud tell us that "Yiftach in his generation was like Samuel in his
generation."

Although Yiftach was not the greatest scholar, he nevertheless was the
recognized leader and a prophet. As such he was accorded the absolute
support of the Halacha and the people. This support can at times appear as
dogmatic as the law of the Red Heifer. However, our absolute support for
our acknowledged Torah leadership is the foundation of our legal system
and the transmission of Torah from generation to generation.

The second reason has to do with the battle with Sichon. Sichon was king
of the Ammonites who had taken possession of lands once belonging to Moab.
Sichon refused to allow the Bnai Yisroel to pass through his lands and
went to war against them. Sichon was destroyed and his lands were
forfeited to the Bnai Yisroel. In our Haftorah, the king of Ammon, as
cousins to the Moabites, claimed legal ownership to the lands which Moshe
had taken from Sichon, who had taken them from Moab.

Just wanted to join the plea of Anonymous at 12:11 pm, who said: "To all the victims out there who have remained silent; Now is the time to come forward, and do the right thing."
Of course it's easy to stand back, and depend upon the testimony of the two brave boys who apparently have come forward, leading to the indictment against Colmer. But to make a really strong case that will be sure to stick, I'm sure that the authorities really could use some help from other victims and their families. If the current case isn't strong enough, your silence could be responsible for this "sexual predator in frum clothing" escaping justice. And worse, you could be responsible for more unfortunate victims going forward.
Do the right thing!

Protests Against Member of Chief Rabbinate Council
June 18, 2007
Rabbonim, dayonim and heads of Vaad HaRabbonim Haolami LeInyonei Giyur, founded by the late Antwerp Gavad HaRav Chaim Kreiswirth, issued strident protests against Rabbi Shear-Yeshuv Cohen, the rov of Haifa and a member of the Chief Rabbinate Council, for grave remarks he made against dayanim who stand firm against accepting prospective converts who fail to persuade them of their genuine intentions to keep Torah and mitzvas in full.

Speaking at a national-religious conference on conversion, Rabbi Cohen said he heard that there are dayanim at the special conversion courts who are careful not to approve the conversion of such candidates. “We have halachic authorities that can be relied on when it comes to accepting [a convert] even when we are not sure that the convert we converted will keep mitzvas,” he said. “The conversion court system was created to accept converts and not to defer them, therefore the conversion courts are not carrying out their designated task.”

Rabbi Cohen also cited a spurious ruling by former Chief Rabbi Goren, who stirred a tremendous controversy 30 years ago when he said, “In Eretz Yisroel there is no need to insist on accepting [the yoke of] mitzvas.”

Rabbi Cohen claimed, “We have halachic authorities who can be relied on when it comes to accepting [a convert] even when we are not sure that the convert we convert will keep mitzvas in the case of someone who wants to live in Eretz Yisroel and even more so regarding someone who has already intermarried and has a mixed family. We try to teach them how to run a Jewish home, which is incumbent on all of us. And I’m not saying chas vecholiloh that one should be lenient in this regard, but neither should they be rejected.”

Rabbi Cohen’s remarks stand in stark contradiction to a halachic ruling in 5744 (1984) signed by HaRav Yaakov Yisroel Kanievsky, HaRav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, HaRav Menachem Man Shach and ylct”a HaRav Yosef Sholom Eliashiv, which reads, “It is a very serious prohibition to accept converts without being convinced they have genuine intentions of accepting the yoke of Torah and mitzvas.”

The Vaad HaRabbonim LeInyonei Giyur also raised strong objections, telling the Chief Rabbinate Counsel to convene an emergency meeting to issue a decision condemning the departure from the ruling by all gedolei Yisroel.

A short time ago MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu) proposed a bill that would give chief rabbis of cities the power to perform conversions. But such legislation would be very problematic. “The fact that the rabbi of one city openly says that one need not be convinced of the convert’s intentions to keep mitzvas in full, and a conversion candidate cannot be rejected, is the best proof of all that the new law could result in bringing thousands of non-Jews into Kerem Beis Yisroel,” reads a Vaad HaRabbonim statement. “Therefore the authority to perform conversions must be vested only in established, well-known botei din.”

crackpot said...

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it
could only do half of what it had been made to do. After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house." The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?" "That's because I have always
known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them."

"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.
Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house." Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very
interesting and rewarding. You've just got to take each
person for what they are and look for the good in them.

So, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path.

Mandatory Fingerprinting for Yeshivas

Community Alert!

New York - Last year, the NYS Legislature passed a law allowing the yeshivas and all nonpublic schools to fingerprint their employees, and conduct national FBI criminal history background checks. The law becomes effective July 1, 2007, and enables our schools to avoid hiring convicted offenders, and other dangerous criminals who should not be working near children.

The law received a good reception in our community, and this year, State Senator Dean Skelos, the Deputy Majority Leader, has sponsored and introduced a bill that will make the fingerprinting and background checks MANDATORY, just as it is for all public schools.

Mandatory fingerprinting has twice been endorsed by the Rabbinical Council of America, in formal Resolutions enacted in May 2005, and May 2007 (they can be read on the RCA web site, rabbis.org; click onto Policies and Positions).

The bill was introduced in the State Senate on April 20, 2007, and was ordered printed on Thursday, June 14, 2007. That is usually the last step before a bill is voted upon. The Legislature session ends Thursday, June 21, 2007.

You can make a difference. Express your support for the MANDATORY NONPUBLIC SCHOOL EMPLOYEE FINGERPRINT BILL Senator Skelos: skelos@senate.state.ny.us

GIRL-GRAB SUSPECT OUT AGAIN
By SAM GOLDSMITH and ALEX GINSBERG
June 19, 2007 -- The towering Brooklyn man who's accused of grabbing an 11-year-old girl after chatting her up inside the lobby of her building last month is free for the second time since his arrest, The Post has learned.

Bernard Mutterperl, 19, was released from Rikers Island Thursday afternoon after scores of supporters pitched in to pay $1 million in bail, Correction Department officials and his lawyer confirmed.

The news came as an unwelcome shock to the family of the girl, Xochil Garcia, who have now endured a series of roller coaster-like reversals.

"I had a pretty good Father's Day," said stepdad Heriberto Rodriguez. "But there it goes now, hearing this. Now to find out that he's been released. What's it going to take for this guy to stay in jail until the trial comes up?"

Mutterperl's release from jail last week came just nine days after Brooklyn Justice Patricia DiMango set the unusually high bail for the suspect, who allegedly admitted, "When I see young girls, I want to go after them."


Mutterperl's lawyer Leo Kimmel, admitted he was surprised the family raised the money so quickly.

"And I guess it was enough. He's not a flight risk," he said.

“The last true frontier in civil rights in the United States is that of children's rights. It is our country's ugly secret that massive numbers of children are abused. Yet the law has been excruciatingly slow both in stopping ongoing abuse, and in deterring abuse before it happens.”

- MARCI HAMILTON

It is not too late to speak up for children.

Dear Marci Hamilton,

The "climate" is not right. The gedolim have to give me the green light, but so far they're busy amassing real estate and don't have the time. In short, kiss my ass!

You can reach me at Camp Morris if you really need me, like to attend a dinner, or be honored for a lifetime of nothingness and missed opportunity to accomplish something of value.

"Warmly",
Shea

What part of Camp Morris is Shea Fishman in - Kochav or Merchav? I'll have to stop by with my pal Gilligan Student to pay a courtesy call. I'm going to tell Belsky that who knew that such chashuvim were present in Machane Moishe.

http://www.streetsblog.org/2007/06/18/david-weprin-the-parking-garage-industrys-valet/

Queens City Council Member David Weprin has been raking in campaign contributions from parking garage owners, all the while serving as one of the loudest critics of Mayor Bloomberg's congestion pricing plan. This ought to sound familiar to Streetsblog readers. Back in May we found that Weprin had taken in at least $20,500 in contributions from the parking lobby. The Post identified an additional twenty grand:

Records show that David Weprin, chairman of the City Council Finance Committee, received 28 contributions totaling $40,650 from garage companies and their owners. Garage operators are worried about losing customers if the city imposes an $8-a-day fee on cars entering Manhattan, and they want to stop the mayor's plan in its tracks.

Austin Shafran, a Weprin spokesman, said the contributions had "absolutely nothing to do with his opposition to congestion pricing."

…In the absence of a (Lubob) leader, there has been a messianic reaction. Based on fragmentary remarks by the Rebbe himself, many of his followers believe that he is the Messiah, and that he will return from the dead to once again lead his followers, and not only his followers, but all the world, into the Messianic era. The belief is certainly not mainstream Judaism, and in the eyes of many is a blasphemy to Judaism no different from the messianic beliefs of Christianity. That the Rebbe's great piety, scholarship, and love of Israel should be sullied by such an unacceptable heresy is a grievous tragedy.…

Frankel's Shul Hang Out said...

Otisville prison has been in the news lately. Because the Federal BOP is trying to remove any books from prison libraries that can incite Muslim terrorists, they have completely overreacted and removed books of any religion. So you might think that the haymishe ganovim are upset about sifrei kodesh being removed? Wrong! Some putz fraudster who gave shiurim noch dem, who has been featured by UOJ, is complaining to the courts that Reform Rabbi Harold Kushner's book "When Bad Things Happen to Good People," is no longer available. The jerk didn't daven by Frankel's but he may has well should have.

MIAMI - Larry Seidlin, the wisecracking judge who presided in the dispute over Anna Nicole Smith's remains and was lampooned for his sobbing announcement of the verdict, will resign next month, a court spokesman said Tuesday. Larry called me and said that I do the same. I asked him why? He said he heard that " I also cried over the remains of Anne Nicole Smith". Something to think about.

DB quotes two very appropriate gemoras that describe aptly the times we live in.

"There is within a person a desire and a longing for theft (corruption) and illicit relations." --Chagigah 11b

"The punishment for dishonest weights and measures is more severe than that for illicit relations." --Bava Bathra 88b

Shea Fishman was very upset when Camp Morris banned BBQs because of danger from bears. He said that if the only place left to fress is at the Agudah convention, then vos vet zein? I think he was sneaking over to Silver Lake to get Margo's shirayim.

Can any enlightened person shed light on this Malkie Spitz story.
The drift I'm getting from the posts is that she enticed married men to cheat with her and videotaped at least some of the
action. Is that correct? Was she
herself married at the time?
What's she up to now?

JOINT STATEMENT:

On the issue of legalizing “alternative-lifestyle” marriage, the Orthodox Jewish world speaks with one voice, loud and clear:

We oppose the redefinition of the bedrock relationship of the human family.

We approach this issue through the prism of the Jewish religious tradition, which forbids Toeva acts, and sanctions only the union of a man and a woman in matrimony.

The institution of marriage is central to the formation of a healthy society and the raising of children. It is our sincere conviction that discarding the historical definition of marriage would pose a severe danger to society in a variety of ways. Thus, we are compelled to protest the proposed redefinition of marriage for the State of New York.

Moreover, we are deeply concerned that, should any such redefinition occur, citizens of New York who are members of traditional communities like ours will incur moral opprobrium and may risk legal sanction if they refuse to transgress their beliefs. That prospect is chilling, and should be unacceptable.

Society’s mores may shift and crumble but eternal verities exist. One is marriage. Its sanctity must be recognized and its integrity preserved.

Dana Olmert, the Prime Minister's daughter, came out publicly today in favor of the homosexual march. An avowed lesbian, Ms. Olmert said, "The question of why we march in Jerusalem is one that doesn't even deserve a response. It's like asking why people should have the right to vote. This parade is a political event, and as such, we need not ask permission to do it... If someone asks why we are holding it in Jerusalem, I simply say, 'Sorry, I have no dialogue with you.'"

Dana Olmert said that she is pleased with the controversy the parade has aroused, and hopes it will bring more and more people "out of the closet."

Opponents of the march plan on holding a "march of beasts" in Jerusalem this afternoon. They wish to show that bestiality and homosexuality are equally forbidden by Torah law.

As YTT is a congregation they don't have to file a form 900, nor any other form, hence it would be really impossible to find out how much margo makes unless you have inside info. Cong. info is simply not public unlike other non-profits like ohel, hatzoloh, etc.

I knew Colmer. He lived on my block, East 15th Street in Brooklyn. I never really spoke with him but I always felt bad for his wife. She was very nice, but always seemed so sad and lonely. When they moved in they were newlyweds. I had heard rumors about him molesting young boys and at that point he moved down the street to another apartment. I remember that his wife had a baby. Seems like no one wants to talk about this matter.
